Paedophile Caught on CCTV Abducting 6 Year Old Girl

The Daily Mail last week revealed CCTV footage showing the moment when Imran Khan, a convicted paedophile, bundled a 6 year old girl into the boot of his car and drove off.

Known Paedophile

Imran Khan was already on the sex offenders register when the incident with the 6 year old took place, for a previous offence involving a 12 year old girl. He was convicted in 2008 for 9 years, but was released in 2013 – serving less than half of his sentence.

The little girl seen on CCTV was playing on her bike in the late afternoon in March earlier this year, when she was spotted by Khan.

Khan followed her for a while before grabbing the child and putting her in the boot of his vehicle. He then drove her 4 miles from Burnley to Hapton, where he exposed himself and attempted to force the young girl to commit a sexual act on him.

Once he had finished, he dumped the child into a nearby wheelie bin and left. The girl was discovered in a state some time later by a group of children playing in the area.

Sentencing

Khan was charged with and pleaded guilty to kidnap, kidnap with intent to commit a sexual offence and also for breach of a sexual offences prevention order.

Jim Elston, Detective Inspector for Preston Police, said:

“This was a horrendous offence which would have been terrifying for any adult, let alone a young child.

“Imran Khan was a registered sex offender living in the community after he was convicted in 2008 of a sexual offence involving a 12-year-old girl.

“While we have rigorous systems in place to manage sex offenders who have served a sentence and been released into the community, this cannot happen 24 hours a day and unfortunately on occasion an offender may go on to commit a further offence as happened in this case.

“Thankfully that is relatively rare.”

He added:

“There is currently a review on going into this particular case and we will clearly look carefully at the results of that to see if there are any lessons we can learn.”
